A wonderful photo session with this smiling boy last week, and his parents. So many smiles, and quite a lot of dribble too! Nine months old is a lovely time – just when they can sit up, without parental support, but can’t run away just yet! Photography session in London, just off High Street Kensington.
Delighted to find that one of my images has been shortlisted for the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2018. This is THE best, international food photo competition with some 8,000 entries, and I am now down to the last 600 – some way to go still, but exciting all the same! I can’t share my image, as otherwise I will be disqualified which would be something of a shame. So… below is Baked Figs – which I came second in the M&S portraiture category last year. And Cricketer’s Apple which I won the Pink Lady Apple section with in 2015. This is my fifth year of being shortlisted, and I have a First, Second & Third position achieved so far. Fingers crossed for 2018!
Had such a wonderful time with these lovely sisters. And the great thing about my job, is that whatever the time of year, there is always something interesting/gorgeous in nature going on. This was early summer and we were spoilt for choice with so many gorgeous fields in the area… just had to ok it with the local farmer first. Rather nicely, not only was the farmer ok with it, he came out of his way to see what we were up to, and to chat about the beautiful land around.
If you are in the area, please come & say hello at the market in the centre of Kingston upon Thames this Saturday 27th May. I will be there showing some original, and sometimes quirky artwork, selling frames of many sizes, and mounted prints, and greetings cards, plus the chance to pick up gift vouchers for family & portrait sessions. Also just there for a chat – do drop by.
Details are: Kingston Craft Market, Market Place, Kingston, KT1 1JQ, 10-4pm.
